26 January 17 | By: Jas Jhooty

training The 2016 Autumn Statement has introduced several new tax raising initiatives including:
  • far reaching changes on the taxation of salary sacrifice schemes
  • and the requirement to apply PAYE on invoices presented to Public Sector bodies by Personal Service Companies

We have updated our annual Benefits & Expenses Training package to explain what these changes are and more importantly to advise on how you can prepare for these changes.

New Training Syllabus

Our 2017 Benefits & Expenses training course has been extensively rewritten in the concise, clear, easy-to-understand format that we have become well known for. It provides practical advice on how to apply the very latest legislative changes including: -

  • The new Trivial Benefits exemption
  • How to voluntarily payroll benefits
  • How the new exemption replacing the P11D dispensation regime operates
  • Planned future employment tax legislation
  • HMRC’s latest Employer Compliance drive
As well as the above brand new content, we also provide full refresher training on how to calculate cash equivalents of benefits-in-kind for all P11D sections, paying particular attention to: –
  • Living Accommodation
  • Mileage Allowances
  • Company Cars
  • Company Vans

Other areas covered include:

  • Calculating Class 1A NIC & completing forms P11D b – including details of future extensions to the Class 1A NIC charge e.g. applying to Termination payments exceeding £30,000 from April 2018
